Airbus A380 in Japan

Airbus A380 test aircraft landed at Tokyo Haneda airport on the 15 October becoming the 120th airport able to take the ultra large passenger aircraft.  During the visit checks were carried out to confirm that both the airport and aircraft could be handled and operate safely. 

Later the aircraft was flown to Sapporo New Chitose airport, Hokkaido on another first airport visit, again to check the readiness of the airport for the aircraft.  Currently, Air France, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines fly the A380 into Narita airport.  www.airbus.com
